Woven Leather Chairs with a West Coast Edge

Issue 87 · Into the Wild · August 26, 2013

Portland, OR-based Eric Trine calls himself a "maker of things"—of those "things," we especially like his custom woven leather chairs with hand-welded iron frames and his rewrapped Risom chairs with cheerful Kelly green webbing. Trine's furniture designs are available at Beam and Anchor in Portland, OR, and by commission (contact him at Eric Trine).

"The inspiration for these chairs started where a lot of my inspiration comes from—directly from the material itself. When I stumbled across a couple of green leather hides at my local leather supply store, I knew immediately I had to do some chairs with it."
